The Detroit Tigers are looking to rebound from their opening night loss to the San Francisco Giants tonight in game 2 of the 2012 edition of the MLB World Series. The action is once again scheduled to begin at 8:05 PM ET in AT&T Park by the bay. Televison viewing will once again be available on the FOX network.
Pablo Sandoval as Mr. October? Well, it at least started off that way last night, as he hit 3 roundtrippers, 2 of them off Justin Verlander, to lead the Giants to an 8-3 victory. Sandoval’s 3 homers were achieved during his first 3 at-bats. Overall, the oversized Sandman went 4-4 with 4 ribbies. Not to be overlooked were the contributions of Giants starter Barry Zito and reliever Tim Lincecum. Zito went 5 and 2/3 innings yielding 1 run on 6 hits. Enter “The Freak” who pitched 2 and a third perfect innings of no run, no hit ball. Start your Baseball Betting on Tigers vs. Giants Game.
It will be a hard act to follow for lefty Madison Bumgarner, who gets the nod tonight for the Giants. He faces righthander Doug Fister for the Tigers. Bumgarner last pitched 11 days ago and suffered a defeat at the hands of St. Louis allowing 6 runs in just 3 and 2/3 innings of work. Fister had much more success on 10/13 vs. the Yankees not allowing a run in 6 and a third logging a no decision.
The Tigers are 6-1 SU in their last 7 playoff games as a favorite. They are 5-1 SU in their last 6 playoff games. They are 0-4 SU in their last 4 World Series games. The Giants are 4-0 SU in their last 4 home games against a right-handed starter. They are 5-0 SU in their last 5 World Series home games.
FYI – The team emerging victorious in the opening game of the series has gone on to capture the crown 62% of the time. Check the Baseball Betting Lines for Tigers vs. Giants Game.
